FORMER Sex Pistol John Lydon – an infamous anti-royalist – has revealed he is a FAN of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Punk icon Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten, provoked outrage when his band snarled their version of God Save the Queen, released during her Golden Jubilee in 1977.
But he told the Sunday Mirror he “approves” of the couple. He said: “They seem very much in love. They actually do, so I’m really all right with that.
Thousands of currant buns will be thrown from the roof of the Abingdon County Hall Museum to mark the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Buns have traditionally been thrown from the top of the building since the coronation of George III in 1761.
The event had previously been put into doubt because of renovation work on the Grade I listed building.
Adela Thomas, of the museum, said people would have to throw “a little further” to clear the scaffolding.
The tradition celebrates royal weddings and significant anniversaries.
The buns, which are baked locally, were thrown to mark the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in 2002 and for the 450th anniversary of Abingdon’s town charter in 2006.
Kate Middleton’s cannabis-smoking, tattooed uncle is on the provisional guest list for her Royal Wedding to Prince William this year.
Gary Goldsmith, the younger brother of Kate’s mother Carole, has been welcomed back into the family fold ahead of the Royal event of the decade despite bringing shame on the family when he was secretly filmed at his Ibiza villa smoking cannabis, arranging drug deals, organising call girls and bragging about his Royal connections.
